Today when Fox announced their fall lineup everyone was surprised to find out that Terra Nova isn’t the only show with dinosaurs coming to their airwaves. They shocked everyone when they announced that Seth MacFarlane is bringing The Flintstones out of the Stone Age and into the year 2013.
The man behind Family Guy got his start at Hanna-Barbera and now he is bringing one of their most famous cartoons back to primetime. Here is what he had to say about it, “The very first cartoon character I drew at age two was Fred Flintstone,” said MacFarlane. “So it’s appropriate that events have come full circle, allowing me to produce the newest incarnation of this great franchise. Plus, I think America is finally ready for an animated sitcom about a fat, stupid guy with a wife who’s too good for him.”
I have been a fan of MacFarlane’s since day one of Family Guy, but I am unsure of his latest venture. While it is fine with him to be crude on 3 current shows, I don’t want to see The Flintstones in the same situations like The Griffins, The Browns and The Smiths. Hopefully since he has been drawing Fred since he was two, he will treat him respect or us fans will send Bam Bam after him!!!
On Sunday Fox was going to air their first Animation Domination crossover event between Seth MacFarlane’s three shows The Cleveland Show, Family Guy and American Dad where they would all be connected by a Hurricane hitting the East Coast, but they have decided to postpone it due to the sad recent events in the South. They released a statement explaining their decision, “In light of the recent storms that have affected the nation, FOX has decided to postpone the crossover episodes of FAMILY GUY, AMERICAN DAD and THE CLEVELAND SHOW that were originally scheduled to air this Sunday.”
I totally understand their decision and I really hope they decide to air them at a later date because they are really funny. There is a great song and dance number that really deserves to see the light of the TV. That and Meg finally grows a pain and has a great scene during Family Guy.
Scott Grimes Tweeted the above picture and said, “Beardless for the first time in eight years!” and I think the Robin Hood star looks so much better without it and years younger than he did with it. I really hope he doesn’t decide to grow it back.
In fact I think he looks even more like Steve, the character he voices from American dad, now that he shaved off the facial hair. On that note below is a scene from last night’s animated Fox show that gave me the heebie jeebies with him dancing.
Fox announced yesterday that American Dad will be back for a seventh season. The show always seems to be on the bubble, but just like cat it has nine lives. I am so happy that Fox is staying with the show because every season they keep surprising me by how for they.
A few years ago Mad TV did a spoof where Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer lost it and went on a mass shootout at the North Pole and I never thought anyone could top it. That is until tonight’s American Dad which makes that bit look all sweet and lovely as compared to the sh!t they do on the Fox show tonight at 9:30p. I can tell you more about it, but you need to experience this episode for all it is worth! It is definitely different than every other Christmas show you have seen or will ever seen again.
Comedy Central announced today that Seth MacFarlane will be the Roast Master at the Roast of David Hasselhoff on August 15th. I am not sure why he got the honor, maybe because of all the jokes they make about the Baywatch star on Family Guy, but I don’t really care because I just love both men. Comedy Central also announced the roasters and they include 4 Dancing with the Stars alum and they are Pamela Anderson, Whitney Cummings, Greg Giraldo, George Hamilton, Hulk Hogan, Lisa Lampanelli, Jeffrey Ross And Jerry Springer. This is the best lineup since the Roast of Bob Saget and I it will be the funniest one since Flavor Flav’s! There is so much to roast David Hasselhoff about and to have his most famous Baywatch star (and former Roastee) there makes the show so much more watchable. Plus the man that hosted America’s Got Talent for two years when The Hoff was a judge on a show was also a great get. I am assuming George is there to compare tans. I am wrestling with why Hulk Hogan is there, but I am sure they have good reason. When it comes to the comedians, I think they are the 4 strongest roasters that Comedy Central has. I don’t know about you but after reading who will be roasting The Hoff on August 15th, I am even more excited for the show.
BTW I will be covering the red carpet, so I can’t wait to preview what should be the hysterical roast for you!!!
Six years ago it looked like Family Guy would not ever see its 100th episode, let alone its 150th, but tonight on Fox at 9p it is reaching that milestone with 1-hour special. The little show that could, will show how much it can tonight with a look back at their best musical numbers from the past 149 shows.
As someone who has been a fan since episode 1, I am so excited that this show is turning 150 tonight and I can’t wait to watch it turn 300 sometime in the future!
I love when a show can push the envelope and get away with something that makes you go how the hell did they get away with that? On last night’s episode of Fox’s The Celevand Show, Cleveland Jr sang a love called, Balls Deep (In Love). As soon I heard the first part of, “I’m talking about balls deep, I’m talking about balls deep, I’m talking about balls deep in love”, my ears totally perked up because the fact that they were able to end on balls deep, I just knew it was only going to get better. The rest of the song goes like this, “I want to have sex with her personality, ‘Dry hump’ her positive traits, Give a pounding to her feelings, Make her south-mouth salivate, hey Tyra are you listening?, We’re not talking just the ‘tip in’.” Seriously how did they get away with all of that? Heck I don’t care how, I am just glad that they did!
I could just see the writers writing this song thinking we will never get this approved and just kept seeing how far they could actually go with it. I would have loved to have seen their faces when they got the go ahead. If this is what made the song, I could only imagine what didn’t? Gotta love the cartoons in the Seth MacFarlane family of shows!!!
Tis the season for holiday specials and The Cleveland Show is getting their first of many Thanksgiving’s episode tonight on Fox at 8:30p! And what better to celebrate Turkey Day with, but with a band who has given us many songs to be thankful for…Hall & Oates! I can’t wait to see what this singing duo on my favorite new animated show of the fall. (Shhh it is the only new animated show that premiered this fall, but you know what I mean!)
BTW something I am thankful for is what Seth MacFarlane created all those years ago with Family Guy that lead to The Cleveland Show and American Dad. Sunday nights are better because of him!
Yesterday on Fox’s special Family Guy Presents Seth and Alexs Almost Live Comedy Show, Marlee Matlin proved why she is an Oscar winner. While I am not trying to take away Marlee’s amazing performance in Children of a Lesser G-d, what she did on the show yesterday was just brilliant. The way she confronts Alex Bornstein for making fun of her was just genius and seemed like it was real. It was a true Oscar worthy moment because if you didn’t know it was fake, you would think she was serious. Granted I am assuming that was fake…
Gotta love Marlee Matlin for giving it as well as she can take it!
